Miura Golf KM-007

Recommended Posts

A few months ago, I discovered Miura Golf was set to release the KM-007 to retail. Shortly thereafter, I received a press release stating it was set to arrive this August. I have played this shape putter for the better part of the last three seasons. There is just something about this shape that suits my eye at address. Putt after putt, I believe I have played my best rounds with this shape putter in the bag. When I saw Miura was adopting this mallet design to add to their line, I knew I had to have it in the bag. If you have ever had the chance to play a Miura product, you know the feel of their forgings are very soft and consistent. This was one of my most anticipated pieces of equipment to date, and I was looking forward to giving the KM-007 a roll.

 

The KM-007 is the fourth addition to the Miura Golf putter line, designed by the company's founder and chief designer, Katsuhiro Mirua. When I first held this putter out of the box, I said aloud, this is the most beautiful putter I have ever seen. A couple things that are readily apparent is what the putter does not have: stamping or distracting logos on the face or cavity. Rather, you are presented with a perfectly milled face and blank cavity, in the muted carbon steel with a nickel/chrome finish. It's almost as if Mr. Miura wanted the shape and quality of the forging to speak for itself representing the Muira brand not with a logo, but in the totality of this forged piece of art. The Miura Golf 1957 series logo is discreetly placed with class on the sole of the putter.

 

According to Miura Golf, this offering begins with a “billet of the finest quality low carbon steel.” The head is forged into it's proper raw shape, then CNC milled to perfection.

 

At address, looking down upon this head, there is a single sight line in the cavity behind the face. This sightline is framed within a carved out portion of the cavity aiding in alignment as well. The blade, graduated step pattern into the mallet, and neck, feature distinct and precise squared off lines. The face seemed to be slightly deeper and measured 1” from the sole to top line, and 3 3/4” from toe to heel. The neck is positioned with minimal offset and is set with a seamless transition into the shaft. As previously mentioned, the low-carbon steel head with a nickel/chrome finish gives off a non-glare, dark grey appearance. The head weighs 360g and is set to a 72 degree lie with 4 degrees of loft. The putter is 34" long and has a Lamkin 3GEN red/black grip with the Miura Golf logo.

 

On course, the legendary feel of a Miura forging was readily apparent. When solidly struck in the center of this face, the buttery soft feel Miura is known for is felt, yet the sound remains remarkably crisp. There is a definite distinction in feel on off center contact which will quickly gravitate your stroke back to center in search of that “purity of the strike.” This head inspires a great deal of confidence with it's weight and mass behind the ball. The unique combination of the precise CNC milling, low-carbon steel, and the feel of close-grain forging, reveal a special putter that quickly earned a spot in my bag. If you prefer this shape, you have to give the KM-007 a roll.

 

Below are some photographs and a brief video I took of the putter...enjoy!

Like the other Miura putters, this puppy has a really nice feel off the face. It won't replace my 006, but it's still a very nice flat stick.

I laught at your claims to fight a zombie apocalypse when most of you can't stand up to a Spider

Those are the stock grips RP.

 

Those Lamkin EBL's seem to be a love/hate grip. I couldn't stand the thing and swapped over to a trusty Iomic but I have friends that will never give them up.

I liked the video SZ. The pictures are great and all, but they don't really tell the whole story of how everything fits to the eye at once like the video did.

It is indeed. The only thing tough to get used to is the lack of off-set coming from a #9. I would like to try a Scotty Del Mar in the near future if I can.
